Really dumb question: What's the difference between a carbine and an assault rifle?

Pretty much the internal parts are different and the carbines are just smaller than the assault rifles..battle rifles like the G3A3 are bigger than both.

Carbine in BF3 = Short - Medium range

Assault rifle in BF3 = Medium - Long range

Most carbines in this game are useless compared to their assault rifle variants (or ones that have the same rate of fire as that carbine). The only exception was the pre-patch AKS-74u since it did the same damage as the AK-74M.

Long story short, a carbine is a more compact version, shorter barrel and lighter/smaller parts make up a carbine, while great for close quarters, the shorter barrel creates less travel time in the weapon itself, lowering accurate ranges.

The most balanced AR (M16) beats the best carbine (M4) at close range...

Oh the irony.



Essentially in game the difference is that carbines are less accurate and do less damage than AR's.


Probably for balance.
Engineer = best vs vehicles, worst vs infantry.
